I have no idea why Eric Holders enforcement shutdown the largest dispensary in Oakland (harborside) and several other (ma and pa) outlets this year in California, the media has stated that many were in violation of various State laws such as proximity to schools and numbers of locations in proximity to one another, whatever.

Some say it was a diversion to take attention away from the "Fast and Furious" Republican fueled scandal and frankly why the "War on Drugs" still gets any funding from Congress is a freakin mystery to me. It's a waste of resources and an antiquated and failed policy.

I believe that legalization would help to reduce the insane violence in Mexico and keep folks safer on our streets and since everyone seems to be looking for new tax revenues why not take the morality play out of the equation and consider the potential revenue stream for debt reduction.

Most progressive states have decriminalized possession of less than one ounce and since when has it ever been a struggle for a head to score some ganja anyway? Go Colorado! Go Oregon! If any of these propositions pass expect some serious heat from Uncle Sam.

See above. It's their answer to jobs, jobs, jobs. Been the case since the early 80s. Republicans and Democrats working together (Insert Bush smirk here).

Just another political bait and switch. This one Chicago style.

Vote out all incumbents for 4 cycles.
